The first Believers did not celebrate Yeshua's birthday

Xmas is very important to Christians all though it is not mentioned

in the New Testament and first believers did not celebrate it.

Actually they did not even know a feast called Xmas – not until

the 4th century BC. In history Xmas is first mentioned in a Roman

calendar AD 354. In that calendar the birthday of Yeshua is united

whit the birth day of Sol Invictus, Invincible Sun, on 25th of

December. It was not until c. 200 that Church Fathers Clement

of Alexandria and Hippolytus of Rome suggested that Yeshua was

born on the  25th of December.

This very day has also been the birth day of Baal, Nimrod, Tammuz,
Mithra, Horus, Isvara, Bacchus, Iacchus, Adonis, Attis, Zarathustra,
Marduk, Kronos, Poseidon, Acca Larentia and Thor. The birth day
of the Roman emperor was celebrated on that day too, whether he
was born on that dayor not.


How does Yeshua fit in that crowd?  What has been the spirit working

in these clergymen, that they could place Yeshya in a crowd like that?


God warns about uniting the Biblical with the Pagan:

"Don’t be unequally yoked with unbelievers, for what fellowship

have righteousness and iniquity? Or what communion has light

with darkness? What agreement has Messiah with Beliya`al?

Or what portion has a believer with an unbeliever?  What agreement

has a temple of God with idols? For you are a temple of the living God.

Even as God said, 'I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will

be their God, and they will be my people'" (2 Cor. 6:14-18).


According to the Scriptures it is quite obvious that Yeshua was not born
in winter but at autumn in the month Tishrei (September-October).
The precise date is not known.


Xmas seems to be deeply instilled into the hearts of many and even if
they understand its pagan nature they still try to mold it to be somehow
holy in order to be able to still celebrate it in some manner.


Celebration of Yeshua’s birthday is an invention of Roman 4th century
anti-Semitic replacement theology. Xmasis one of the festivals that
replaced the God given Appointed times (Lev. 23) that were rejected.


Concerning the festivals believers ought to hold on to the Scriptures –
not to add anything in Scriptures. First believers did not celebrate

Yeshua’s birthday and it is not mentioned in the New Testament as

a festival, not even related to Succot festival. The time of Yeshua’s

possible conception is not mentioned to be happend during Chanukkah.


Because the Apostles did not emphasize those things there no need
for us to do that either.
